Hello

I went to see a used car I found through Auto Trader at a Bristol dealership today. I liked that car and went home and looked up the dealership to check out their credentials. It was Tiley Motors (on the business card), also known as Tiley of Bristol (website). According to Companies House they are "dissolved".

How do I check this out for certain? Can I ask them? Who can I call?

 

Is it possible that they are trading illegitimately?

We're talking about car dealers here, anything is possible 😁

You need to see the heading on an invoice etc. Usually it will be something like Dodgy Car Dealers Limited trading as Tiley of Bristol cars. then serch for that company and its directors. Once you have found the directors, look for any other business dealings and see what you think.

Hi

On their website there is no information to any company registration at Companies House but of course they could be different company trading as tliey.

 

the only info I have found is for Tileys motors Ltd.

 

THE CONIFERS

FILTON ROAD

HAMBROOK

BRISTOL

ENGLAND

BS16 1QG

 

BUT this company is dissolved and has been since 2012.

 

If Tiley check out reviews or anything else on the web, perhaps they would like to register and give us their Companies House registration number and explain why none of the required info is available on their website

If you are asked to deal with any matter via private message, PLEASE report it.

Everything I say is opinion only. If you are unsure on any comment made, you should see a qualified solicitor

Anyone went fishing at the weekend?

It's quite fishy here...

I share my way of thinking: If a company is registered under one name and then trades under a dozen completely different names I find that suspicious.

After all when you start a company you decide its name.

Why have a company called Mr nobody ltd and then trade as Mr Smith ltd???

Especially with car dealers and builders it's always appropriate to dig a bit further before parting with any money.

If it's Tiley's that are close to Hartcliffe (Vale Lane/Hartcliffe Way), whilst I don't know about their current trading status, I can tell you that they've been there, in the same place, for many many years.

 

They also used to supply (I don't know if they still do now that they're SWAST) the as was Avon Ambulance Service (then Great Western Ambulance Service Trust) with Ambulance RRV's, so they're fairly well established I'd say.

In fact, they're probably just waffling and can be quite safely and completely ignored as you wish.
